I love Donna and everything about her. some if my fav moments are 5.1.77 sunrise and 5.11.78 looks like rain. She also did a great job singing she belongs to me at my with Steve kimock. I love that video on YouTube,

On a side note, for some reason she doesn't do her scream in playing in the band at 1.8.79. I often talk to her about this stuff and she always has great stories. She is a true gem. I strongly recommend seeing her band. They seem to play the east coast a lot, plus she is great to talk to.

I checked out the 5/1/77 Sunrise (my favorite is probably 5/9) and see there's no SBD of the 2nd set ... are you working on an upgrade of one of the AUDs, maybe?

The great things about Donna are (a) her vocals are often beautiful; and (b) when they're not, they push folks to great heights of verbal creativity in a vain effort to describe their sonic impact. Plus, of course, 5/19 can be used as a weapon :-)

Since you're obviously much too modest to provide it yourself here's the link for everyone to enjoy.

And speaking as one who's enjoyed a few cheap laughs at Donna Jean's expense in the past, I have to say that was very nicely said, Mr Miller.

Very true. While I will not back down from my opinion of her shrieking, I will say that I do value what she brought to the table in terms of harmonizing with Bob. She also did have some really good moments on her own, an example being the Scarlet from the 77 Mosque show. THAT is a Donna moment I do enjoy.

But again, when she is bad, she is bad.

All of this is personal opinion of course. I hold nothing against those who feel strongly the other way.




Well, maybe a little...

Donna has nice harmony going in this Scarlet from 1976 then Donna sings some beautiful harmony with Bob in LLR
